Fire severely damages office building in Port Chester

An early morning fire badly damaged some professional offices in Westchester today.

Officials believe the fire started in one of the back rooms of the America Optical Shop.

The smoke and heat then spread to the second floor, which has law, dental and other professional offices.

No one was in the building at the time.

Firefighters were able to contain the blaze from spreading to the businesses next door.
